Towards the use of cannabinoids as antitumour agents (May 4, 2012)

Description

Various reports have shown that cannabinoids

(the active components of marijuana and their derivatives) can reduce

tumour growth and progression in animal models of cancer, in addition to

their well-known palliative effects on some cancer-associated symptoms.

This Opinion article discusses our current understanding of cannabinoids

as antitumour agents, focusing on recent insights into the molecular

mechanisms of action, including emerging resistance mechanisms and

opportunities for combination therapy approaches. Such knowledge is

required for the optimization of preclinical cannabinoid-based therapies and for the preliminary clinical testing that is currently underway.
